ACADEMY DANCE PROGRAM
The professional dance faculty at the Academy offers the opportunity for students to train in a pre-professional dance program. At the Academy, students will receive comprehensive and rigorous dance training. Students participate ballet classes (up to 5 times per week for the most advanced students) along with modern, partnering, pointe, conditioning, Broadway Tap and Theater Jazz.
Class Level placement is based upon assessment at the beginning of each semester. Our dance curriculum also includes special seminars in subjects such as Anatomy and Kinesiology, Composition, and Dance History. The dance program at the Academy offers students the training to be prepared for a high standard of dance at the professional and/or college level. In addition to their training at the Academy, students have the opportunity to audition for one of our acclaimed youth ensembles, Metropolitan Youth Ballet, Metropolitan Youth Tap Ensemble or iMpulse Jazz Company.
